If you are interested in building your own chicken coop take a look at these two comprehensive guides:
- Building A Chicken Coop
- Chicken DIY Guide
Alright, welcome to a video on chicken coop plans. when people need coops, this is what they build. This is a quick little video I put together just to give you guys information as well as inspiration about building chicken coops. This will just be a number of basic designs you can just look at that will inspire you or give you some ideas.
You can see a pretty straight forward chicken coop here, a slanted roof, a fence area, easy access for the owners, and very well protected from the outside weather. Even though your chickens will be free-range, you still want them to be protected from predators, as well as the weather.
Here’s another design for a chicken coop. you can see it’s raised up and off the ground. again, the fence is very well protected so the chickens are safe in there, but again, easy access for the owners to remove the eggs and get the chickens themselves. Moving on to the next picture, here’s a different style. of course, you can have the fence around the chicken coop. hopefully that depends on the area, it can be bigger or smaller, depending on what you’re looking for. it keeps the chickens protected, but also allows them to go in and out of the actual chicken coop itself.
Here’s another shot of the chicken coop we saw a couple slides of back at a different angle, to give you guys a better perspective of what this particular design looks like. It’s slightly different from the previous slide of a similar design, but essentially the same. Let’s move on to the next picture here. of course you’ve got the puppy outside. He’d love to get a fresh meal there, but the dog cannot. of course, it’s fenced. you can see that there’s a tarp bungee corded to the chicken coop there. again, just to be able to drop down when the weather’s a little more rough or severe. that may be something that some of you that are watching this are thinking about.
This is a chicken coop design that is more along the lines of mobile, so if you want to move it to different positions on your property, you certainly can do so. again, it’s basically just building a chicken coop design on top of wheels, so that you can move it to where you need to move it, which can certainly come in handy. It’s not a permanent structure, or at least semi-permanent.
Here is an inside shot of the chicken coop. it gives you an idea of the internal structure of this particular design. This, you can see, has certain elements that need to be part of the structure of your chicken coop, for those of you that are going to be building one that is prebuilt, or even one that is custom. There’s another inside shot of the chicken coop. This one basically just needs chickens in it. you can see very simply how it’s laid out, compartmentalized, and whatnot. Very straight forward. You’ll notice any fabrication of putting together these chicken coops is not overly difficult.
Here’s a great shot of that, very simple structure. again, it depends whether you’re getting something that’s prebuilt, or if you’re going to be building this yourself. of course, here’s the final picture of a little girl on top of the chicken coop, and hey, if she can do it, we can all do it, right? you know, when you scour the internet you’re sure to stumble upon a number of different designs.
